The Podiatric Externship is sponsored by Norton Audubon Hospital. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Externs will need transportation for traveling to private offices and other affiliate hospitals.
Our goal is to provide surgical and nonsurgical activities in a structured environment that will help strengthen podiatric medical students’ knowledge of podiatric medicine and surgery. We also provide an externship manual to assist in training. Each extern is expected to remain integrally involved during the externship. Externs will rotate with a variety of affiliated podiatric and orthopedic physicians in surgery and in private offices. Externs are responsible for assisting with pre-, peri- and postoperative management of patients. Externs also will attend all didactic events. They are required to lead a PowerPoint presentation for journal club and participate in case discussions.
Those chosen for externships will be notified by mail, email or phone.
